K.U.L.U. - Women and Development


For 37 years KULU - Women and Development(KULU) has been a central player in putting women’s rights and gender equality on the international and Danish development agendas through advocacy, information, and development cooperation in partnership with women’s organisations and networks in the Global South.                
KULU–Women and Development is a non-partisan advocacy and development organisation for 23 women´s organisations, women and equality councils of political parties, development NGOs, trade unions, and other civil society organizations and individual members. KULU began working in connection with the first UN International Women’s Conference in 1975 and was officially established in 1976 at the beginning of the UN Decade for Women. KULU has since then been an active contributor to Danish and international development policy and aid discourse and advocacy.
